Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Follow people and topics, part of Yammer 2018 Essential Training.
- [Instructor] When you follow someone on Yammer,…messages that they create will show up in your feed…on your homepage, under Following.…That's the request that you're making.…Remember that I have access to every post…that's created in a group already.…If what I want to see are posts…that Charles makes in Engineering and Manufacturing,…not a problem, I'm a member of that group…and I will see those posts.…But what if I'd like to see posts…that Charles makes that don't have anything…to do with our work in Engineering and Manufacturing?…Charles is a thought leader in our organization,…and I'd like to know more about how he's thinking…and what he's posting about.…
If I simply point I can click the Follow button here.…I can also click the Follow button…to the right of his name anyplace I see it.…Now I'm following Charles Woodwick.…What if I want to unfollow Charles?…The same button that allowed me to follow,…I can click again to unfollow.…So, who should I follow and why?…First, I don't need to follow people…who are in groups with me, in teams with me,…
